9781517544256: Daunted Courage: A Family's Bicycle Adventure on the Lewis and Clark Trail

Sometimes the best way to understand history is to ride a bicycle through it. Daunted Courage tells the story of an adventurous father and his two young children who spend a summer re-tracing the Lewis and Clark Trail, first by car then by bike. Offering entertaining insights into the most famous expedition in U.S. history - and into raising resilient children - the story takes the reader on a thoroughly enjoyable ride. Is 1,700 miles too far to cycle for a twelve-year-old boy and six-year-old girl? Can they really pedal over the Rocky Mountains all the way to the Pacific Ocean? Charles Scott and his kids were daunted, but decided to try anyway, telling people, "Kids can do a whole lot more than most adults think." And like any good adventure, things did not always go as planned. Daunted Courage mixes danger, history, child-rearing, and the travails of exploring the unknown into a grand tale that will leave you wanting to go out and create your own adventure.
